Live the Good Life for Less & Never Miss a Deal

Random Acts of Starbucks #payitforward

Sharing is caring!

Give a Starbucks, get one free. That’s the deal with Starbucks’ “Come together” promotion starting today, October 9, 2013. Here’s the explanation from the Starbucks website.

Come Together

Our customers do amazing things everyday. A customer buys the next person in line their favorite beverage—not as an act of charity or thanks—but an acknowledgement of commonality and humanity. The gesture is small, but the act is endlessly inspiring.

In times like these, small acts of civility like these make a big difference. With that, we are extending a gesture. If you come into Starbucks and buy someone else their favorite beverage, we’ll give you a free tall brewed coffee.

We’re hoping this small motivation will encourage you to be the spark of connection that helps bring us all a little closer at a time when showing our unity is so important.

#payitforward—and lets see what can happen.

Offer good October 9–11, 2013 at participating stores.

Coincidentally, the Kansas Credit Union Association is randomly giving away $25 gift cards today (Oct. 9) at gas stations in Wichita and Topeka, Manhattan, Ark City, Emporia, Norton, Ness City, and the Kansas City area to spread the message of “people helping people.” (Follow hashtag #theCUway on Twitter to see it unfold.)

Earlier today, I helped someone fix a technical problem on a website. I was more than willing to help and expected nothing in return, but when she sent me a gift card to say “thank you,” it really brightened my day. I’m thinking this is a good day to give to others. What do you think? Will you have an opportunity to give of your time, talents and abilities, knowledge, compassion, extra coupons, or even, yes, buy someone a cup of coffee?

Might be a good day to look for the opportunity, and take it when it comes.
